Quick tip for remainers. If you say EEA/Norway is crap because UK would have to accept Freedom of Movement you are making an anti-EU point.

If you say EEA+CU is crap because UK couldn’t do its own trade deals, you are making an anti-EU point. 1/

I think EEA+CU would be a poor, less-bad-than-the-others option in comparison to EU membership, not due to its inclusion of aspects of EU Membership, but rather due to its lack of inclusion of key aspects like decision making power and representation in institutions. 2/

Using the same arguments Brexiters use against EU membership against it is absurd, and likely to backfire.
